Pantero Broadens Semantic Data Integration

Pantero Broadens Semantic Data Integration

Pantero Corporation, a provider of data integration software announced that it has made available key new innovations for semantic integration in the Pantero Release 1.2. In this release, Pantero debuts the Expression Builder for creating sophisticated data interpretation and validation services without having to write code. In addition to previous releases on the BEA software platform (Nasdaq: BEAS), this release adds support for IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Sun Microsystems (Nasdaq: SUNW) platforms to extend the platform compatibility of Pantero software. Pantero Release 1.2 also introduces new standards support with the import and conversion to XSD of Unified Modeling Language (UML) models.

The release further strengthens Pantero's position as a provider of tools for delivering valid business data in integration projects. Pantero's software is the first integration solution to go beyond managing the format integrity of data to address the far costlier challenge of managing the business validity of data shared between applications. Building on open XML standards and scalable J2EE platforms, Pantero automates the validation and enrichment of data flows based on metadata instead of requiring hundreds to thousands of lines of code. "By supporting the most widely-deployed platforms and data formats available today, Pantero brings valid data interoperability to virtually every corner of the enterprise," said Pano Anthos, CEO of Pantero. "This will bring dramatic cost savings to a wide range of integration projects, particularly in maintaining the validity of integrated data over time as systems, message definitions, and requirements change."

Benefits to Developer and Architect Community

Pantero's software provides benefits to architects by providing an exchange model with metadata for semantic integration. This model allows architects to create and maintain a data architecture that centrally manages the business rules and operations that govern data interoperability. For software developers, Pantero ensures that every exchange of data is valid, consistent, and useful, by linking business rules to data structures and message formats.

One of the most expensive and complex challenges of integrating business applications is ensuring semantic interoperability of data exchanged between systems. Enterprises often have multiple definitions for a customer, product, or order, as well as business requirements to present data about these entities differently according to rules and roles within the business. Reconciling the inherent differences and validating the rules assigned to the data in a given business case require an array of rules, business operations, and validation services. With Pantero, these operations are not hidden throughout the enterprise, but instead are available to developers in a single, consistent, and unified view where they can be managed and reused.

Release 1.2 includes a new graphical tool for defining business integrity rules. The Expression Builder allows developers to graphically assign meaning to data concepts and create complex mappings to create rules that ensure that shared data is valid within the context of local applications.

"With the addition of graphical tools to define not just transformations but also integrity rules, not only does developer productivity increase, but the opportunity to catch and correct data problems earlier in the transaction cycle allows systems to reduce the number of expensive manual corrections to transactional data that plague financial systems," said Evan Bauer, industry consultant and former CTO at Credit Suisse First Boston. "Pantero's software uniquely addresses these challenges by treating data in-flight with the same schema-driven rigor that is applied to data stored in relational databases."


The Pantero Release 1.2 is available immediately. For full platform support and additional information, please contact a Pantero representative.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
